Melange No. 3... a brewery only selection I am lucky to be enjoying thanks to a very good friend of mine. A mixture of Black Tuesday, Anniversary Ale and White Oak Sap, weighing in at 15.5%- this one will make it truly a night to remember! In the glass, this concoction is a deep garnet, yet still manages to let some light through. A tan ring encircles the glass. Very alluring indeed.

The aroma is an intoxicating hodgepodge of earthy sweetness... Vanilla, bourbon, molasses, oak barrel, leather, coffee, cinnamon & spices, milk chocolate, and bold malts. It's simply incredible. As the flavors blissfully overwhelm my palate, I am nearly at a loss for words. This is one godlike beverage! It begins with a juicy, syrupy sweetness, before the warm, roasty, and strong alcohol waves envelop the taste buds. Everything previously mentioned aspect somehow balances out... It's a minor miracle. The Bruery says this a black and tan... what a joke. Black and Tan for your last wish on this earth perhaps! It doesn't *feel* heavy, but as soon as it goes down I'm left with a sensation that says, boy was that strong! It feels so silky and velvety in the mouth though!

Overall, I would recommend this for anyone who loves barrel aged beer, sweet, or strong ales. Very unique blend of astounding components. Loving life right now, Happy New Year 2014!
